Reading Support

"Strong reading skills are key to learning in all areas of the curriculum. For many primary school children, reading is mechanical and lacking in meaning. Children often lack motivation to read and are unable to problem solve words independently." Gill Cartwright, Retired Reading Support Consultant, Education Works.

Education Works offers bespoke consultancy for Teaching Assistants, Support Assistants, Learning Mentors and volunteers so that they can work successfully with children to address reading difficulties and boost their reading age.
